Chimney Cake Festival

Budapest, Városliget, 11 October 2019 - 13 October 2019
The 7th Sekler Cake Festival awaits all visitors who would like to taste this crispy, sweet delicacy which originates from Transylvania and continues to charm the Hungarians with its seductive barrel (or chimney) shape ever since it first came into fashion during the 18th century.
There are many legends about 'kürtőskalács' as the Hungarians call it, but as 'kürtő' means 'stovepipe', the most probable is that the Seklers used to twist thin 'ribbons' of dough around the stovepipe and baked them that way, creating a peculiar chimney-shaped cake. However, the result of their labours is a delicious, stodgy dessert which is highly popular in Hungary and also in Transylvania. Traditionally the dough is only sprinkled with some sugar which caramelizes during the baking process creating a crispy, shiny surface. But today we are living in the age of gastro-revolutions, so attendees can also taste ginger, coconut, raspberry or chocolate flavoured chimney cakes at the City Park (Városliget), behind the Vajdahunyad Castle. Concerts, workshops and fine beverages will make the event more colorful. Admittance is FREE!
